The Dealmaster rounded up the best early Black Friday deals we can find in the last few weeks, but today we wanted to highlight a particularly noteworthy sale of standing desks and related home office accessories from Fully, which we previously recommended in our guide to decorating your home. Home office.
Through November 30, the company is taking 15 percent off nearly all standing desks, desk frames, converters, chairs, monitor arms, racks, and other home office accessories on its online store. Many of these discounts have also been duplicated in Fully’s Amazon store via coupons on the page, if you prefer to shop from there. For context, street prices on (among other things) full desks have been rising steadily over the past few months, so the discounts here don’t bring the lowest prices we’ve ever tracked. But for those looking to adopt a standing desk today, the sale is a great opportunity to save on a few options we like.
Among the discounted items we tested and recommended are the Fully’s Jarvis Standing Desk and the Cooper Standing Desk Converter. While the Jarvis isn’t our top pick for a standing desk – Uplift’s V2 desk offers a handful of more customization options, though it’s not as suitable for shorter frames – it’s still an attractive choice from both an aesthetic and functional standpoint. The sustainably sourced bamboo top on our test model helps the desk fit like semi-high-end furniture, dividing the room while making the office feel less office-like. You can also choose from desktops made of laminate, natural wood, and whiteboard materials. Each varies in price, with laminate costing the least and sustainably sourced natural wood yielding a higher price. And yes, you can use dry erase markers on the top of the whiteboard.
Offers a variety of desktop shapes and sizes, including L-shaped desks and options with built-in drawers. The abundance of accessories available is also one of Fully’s main selling points: in addition to being able to design your own desk to specification (choose color, frame, material, shape, size, etc.), you can also add a mountable shelf, surge protected power strips, electrical grommets, all kinds of stools and chairs, arms for two or one monitor, cable management solutions, mountable or stand-alone drawers and a selection of motion boards, mats and other accessories. You can even add a bottle opener or a treadmill depending on your preferences. The prices of this wide selection vary, but it gives you plenty of ways to make the desk more versatile or more comfortable.
Most Fully standing desks come standard with up/down buttons, but you can opt for control panels with up to four memory settings for $35 more. You can also opt for an “extended range” desk frame that extends from 24.5 inches to 50 inches instead of the standard 29 inches to 48.25 inches. The latter may not be entirely necessary: As someone who is six feet tall, I had no complaints about the maximum height of 48.25 inches.
Regardless, the build quality of the Jarvis is top notch. If for any reason you run into mechanical issues, there’s a seven-year warranty on the mechanical frame and one year of coverage for the desktops.
If you already have a desk you love but still want to try a standing desk, we also recommend Fully’s Cooper Standing Desk Converter. It’s ideal for larger desk spaces, as the 21×35.5-inch area comfortably accommodates a 34-inch monitor in addition to your laptop, mouse and even a pair of speakers. The keyboard tray measures 12×30 inches and offers enough space for any size keyboard and mouse. The desktop can hold loads up to 30 lbs, while the drawer can support up to 5 lbs.
The hydraulically assisted converter only needs a quick push of the lever to rise from desk level to 22 inches. Even with a heavy monitor and laptop setup, lifting it up is easy enough to make standing easier when your legs or back start to get fussy. There are both bamboo and solid black versions, so you can choose according to your style. The 15 percent discount in this case brings the desk converter from $300 to $254.
